About Me

I have been a design instructor at Colorado State University for 20+ years and have been teaching at Front Range Community college in Fort Collins Colorado for the last 6 years. I have extensive knowledge of the 3-D modeling programs 3DSMAX and Sketch-Up and the Adobe Creative Suite. My MFA is in Drawing and I have taught interior design drawing as well as fine art drawing. I have taught wood-shop and paper design as well as technical sketching and graphic novels.  Outside of academia I run a design/build, sculpture, illustration, animation business. I am a local of Ft. Collins and my wife and our two grown sons wind-surf in the summers.
